    The supply chain is a total mess.

    Saw this at the HEB today.

    But what is strange is they had individual flats and points.
    Not many, but some. And no chuck roasts.

    Every grocery trip is an adventure

    I'm sitting in a state with more hogs than people. I know farmers with thousands of hogs. I'm going to estimate one of the guys in one of my churches has upward of 20,000 hogs. Probably a low estimate. I also have a trucker in one of my churches whose primary business is hauling dead hog to be rendered. Nonstop right now.

    I'm also surrounded by COVID hot spots, basically wherever there is one of the big processors.

    I feel for all of these, (well, maybe not so much the owners of the big plants, primarily based in China, who put the people working the lines in danger, even without the virus).

    It is going to take some time for things to come back. Beef can be held longer, but pork and poultry is supposed to be a specific size when they process them. If the production of hogs and birds is stopped, it will take a while for them to restart. The president and my governor has ordered the processing plants to stay open, but they are at reduced capacity.

    Went to the Kroger last night. A fairly small choice chuck roast, $19.00!

    Hopefully I am breaking even by diverting my gas money to meat.
    The sad part is that here I am about to pull the trigger on a new rig and the price of meat goes up.

    I got sticker shock when I bought meat from supermarkets before COVID. Paid $3.25 a lb for a side of beef last fall, and $225 for a half hog bundle at the beginning of the year. Otherwise, I only buy meat when I need multiple briskets or butts, and/or I see a really good deal. Like last week when I bought 4 butts at 99 cents a lb. One of the restaurants in my area, which is just doing drivein sales at this point, had on their Facebook page a picture of a tube of ground beef that had a price tag of 80 bucks as the reason why their prices were going to have to go up. Others pointed out that the picture was from a store that was close to 2 hours away from us, and the supermarket in town had 10 lb tubes of ground beef for under 3 bucks a lb.

    For me, since I normally use locally sourced meat, and local butchers/processors, the only problem is that all of them in my area are booked through November. Actually, the place I got the half hog from, along with others, has been processing meat, basically just grinding it, quickest and easiest for people to use, and donating it to food pantries. Mostly hogs that would otherwise be euthanized and rendered.

    Supply chains are problematic and I think they need diversification. That can only help the ranchers and farmers. The current supply chair was surprisingly fragile.

    Just made grocery for the week.
    Baby back ribs $2/lb. "st Louis spare ribs" $3/lb
    Pork loin $2.50/lb

    No brisket at all. Only beef was ground. .
    No roast beef in the deli.

    I'm sure next week will be the opposite.

    Not long ago WTI oil was $125. And gas here was close to 6 bucks a gallon.

    I think June and July contracts are somewhere in the $30. Range and I paid $3.10 a gallon the 2 days ago. “This weather is expensive” someone recently said.

    Edit WTI for July $33.95 as of a minute ago.

    Meat prices here have been weird.
    One week - brisket packers were $2.99/lb.
    Next week $5.99/lb but the Nolan Ryan chuck roasts {from the finest cows Aggie science ever made} were $2.99/lb and prime rib eye was $9.99/lb.

    Local Kroger seems to mainly be getting supplied by local packing plants.

    Either way - I hope meat prices go down, and oil prices come up.
    Although generally I don't think prices ever go down once they go up.

    Remember when baggage handling fees were introduced as "temporary"? You knew they'd never go away once they stuck.

    Good grief. I don't belong to Costco but their brisket is $6.09 per pound. Sounds a little steep.
